CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — A glass monument to revolutionary icon Ernesto "Che" Guevara was shot up and destroyed less than two weeks after it was unveiled by Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez's government to mark the 40th anniversary of Guevara's death.
Images of the 8-foot-tall glass plate bearing Guevara's image, on an Andean mountain highway near the city of Merida was unveiled Oct. 8.

Chavez venerates Guevara as a model socialist for all Venezuelans. Police said they had yet to identify those responsible.

The Local Malcontent's take on this news: Nice Shot. Looks even more like Che now.
